QTVOTD: God’s provision in a crazy way…

“Jesus said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turnabout) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all].  Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever receives and accepts and welcomes one little child like this for My sake and in My name receives and accepts and welcomes Me.” Matthew 18:3-5 ->me:  Well, isn’t this the perfect set of verses to read after what has transpired over the last 79 hours.  Monday afternoon at 1pm, Marianne got a call from Prim’s birth-mom (Brianna) that she had given birth to another baby girl (Prim’s half sister) and wanted to know if we would be open to adopting this new precious little one (Brooklyn).  God had been laying on our hearts a desire to adopt another little one (in birth order – younger than Prim) so that Prim and this new little one could grow up in our family having someone in their same life circumstance (being adopted) to lean on….and God answers with something better, a biologically connected sister.  Tuesday evening, with the help of our wonderful adoption attorney, received a Power of Attorney and picked up Brooklyn from Valley Medical Center in Renton.  To be clear, there are several hurdles – 1) The birth dad has yet to be contacted about this development.  It is entirely possible that he will have no interest in putting his new found daughter up for adoption.  2) We do not have the work done on our side (Home Study) by a licensed Social Worker to be approved to adopt.  We are however, right on the way with this thanks to our wonderful Social Worker, Gina who did our Home Study for Prim.  Having another newborn in our home is so refreshing and draining at the same time, but she is absolutely precious and adorable.  God is in control and whatever happens, to know that God provided in such an amazing way grows my faith!
